August can be a challenging month in the garden. The heat is unrelenting and the weeds are growing strong. It’s right around now that our plants can start to look a little tired or spent, and as gardeners, it can be a difficult time because we may be a little tired and spent ourselves!

In our weekly Down the Garden Path podcast, we discuss down-to-earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes. As professional landscape designers and passionate gardeners, Matthew Dressing and I believe it’s not just important but possible to have beautiful gardens that are low maintenance. We know you love your gardens, too, and want to help you make it happen.

We are loving our regular feature, the monthly “In the Garden” episode. In this last show of each month, we discuss the tasks you should undertake in the garden the next month. We do our best to give you all the information you’ll need to keep your garden thriving and as low maintenance as possible. 

In this episode, Matthew and I talk about the do’s and don’ts for the challenging August garden. From watering tips to weed and insect control, we cover it all.
